My "sun"

This little boy's mother is so negligent! Seriously - what kind of a woman takes their baby out and sits them in the sun without sunscreen? Well, the kind that didn't know her baby was burning because he cooks like his mother - you can't see the pink until about 3 hours later.
Still, I think he's pretty cute with his little pink nose and his fuzzy hair. He's getting so big and all of his clothes fit funny right now - too big around and not long enough. He makes me laugh and loves to play with his brother and sisters. He also thinks it's very funny if anything is thrown in the air or when one of them jumps off of something. he cut his top 2 teeth and those were some fussy days and there are a few more coming in. Those teeth make him look so big! I love to hear him laugh. Nursing has become quite the wrestling match though as he likes to nurse standing up and that is a little difficult for me. His nursing days are numbered but I don't know how I want to wean him and honestly am hanging on to the baby - I guess I'm not quite ready to be "done"?

He is an adorable child. Love the chicken-feather hair and the bright smile.

I've heard of women who want to "hang on" to the breastfeeding days, but that is something I cannot understand whatsoever. I'll probably be screaming: "Leave my boob alone" after only two weeks.

Is this why I'm not selfless enough to be a mother yet?

I admit, I cried when my last two babies didn't want to nurse anymore. I felt so rejected...

I absolutely LOVE his hair! It lookes like Tell's, and I love his hair too. :) And the flood pants are a crackup.

And the nursing thing...hmmmm...you know how I feel about this.

Toni Dear! A little gel or mousse would help his hair a great deal!! It would look on purpose instead of . . . like Fred the night hair dresser had a party!!Sorry, just saying it like it is.

That hair is awesome. Don't dis the hair! :)

It's tough when they're teething (both during, and after, when they realize they can use their teeth to bite other humans), but it's good to see he's growing along just fine.
